This is the local hotspot for gourmets. Historic Giovanni Scaturchio, located in San Domenico’s square, has a reputation of more than a century for making the best cakes in Naples. Where tradition meets modernity, the finest sweet treats in the city are made. Whatever you chose to taste, this old bakery is definitely not to be missed.


Patisserie, Italian
Babà was invented in Naples and here you can find the best in the city, if not in the world. Located just across the street from the legendary pizzeria Sorbillo, Mazzarro hosts a lovely selection of cakes including some unique specialties. Choose this lovely, typical Neapolitan patisserie and experience the culinary scene and local hospitality at their best.

Caffè Svelato

Among other things, Naples is well known for its coffee, and Svelato is where you will find the best in the city. Spend a few moments there and order a doppio (double) espresso, a cappuccino or a lungo macchiato (stretched espresso with a spot of milk). Enjoy it with a sweet or snack at one of the few small tables in front or sip it by the bar, just like locals do.


In a city filled with topnotch cafés, it is quite hard to make a decision about the best one. Yet, Ciorfito is without a doubt among the best, serving a wide variety of exceptional coffees to die for, perfectly complemented by some excellent biscuits and pastries.


Some people describe their culinary experience at Capparelli as almost spiritual. Capparelli and its passionate staff have set the highest standards regarding local, creamy pastries. Before you leave, don’t miss the chance to sample some heavenly baked zeppole.
